If you have lost many or all of your teeth, our dentists may recommend dentures to restore your smile. Dentures are custom-made, removal dental appliances used to replace multiple missing teeth. We offer both complete (full) and partial dentures to accommodate each of our patient’s unique dental needs.
Complete dentures are used to replace an entire arch of missing teeth. The denture consists of prosthetic (artificial) teeth set into a pink, gum-colored base. The base sits on your gums, and our dentists might recommend using a denture adhesive for improved stability. A partial denture is used when some natural teeth are still left. The partial denture fills in the gap left by the missing teeth, and it may include a thin framework or clasps that attach to the neighboring teeth for enhanced security. Whichever type of dentures you need, our dentists will make certain that your oral appliance fits comfortably and aesthetically.
When in place, dentures can help to enhance your smile’s beauty, improve your ability to chew, speak, and eat as normal, and restore lost facial volume and shape.
